Walkers Transport offers fully secure storage and warehousing facilities
Walkers is proud to offer large UK stockholding facilities across strategic locations at various venues across England. As UK and EU businesses try to navigate the uncertainty caused by Brexit, Walkers’ services allow their European partners to rest easy in the knowledge that their products are in good hands.
What is stockholding?
There are two forms of stockholding: 1) where goods are delivered to site and placed into stock for future use, or 2) where goods are delivered to site, reworked – picked and packed – and then re-distributed across the country. The former being the most popular form of stockholding. Walkers storage and handling facilities play a vital role in regulating the flow of deliveries as well as ensuring that all goods are available when needed thanks to our detailed records and collecting systems.
Materials can be held within a momentary holding facility where the goods are kept for a few hours, or in a larger storage area where they can be held for days or weeks.
Why you should have a UK stockholding if you are operating a European business.
Quicker response time
Having a stockholding means you are able to fill all UK customer orders easily and quickly – practically as soon as they come in – without having to worry about waiting for your stock to arrive in the country before being able to get your customers’ orders moving. There’s nothing better than consistently delivering orders on time, or early!
Keeping excess inventory means you are able to make sure that your shelves are always full and you have stock on hand!
Decreased risk of shortages
By keeping stock on hand, you are able to near enough guarantee that you will not run out of a particular item. Should there be a change in the demand for any of the goods you hold, having a healthy stockholding means you are likely to comfortably cope with fluctuations in demand.
